Division in their sights, McDavid's Oilers take aim at Ducks

Connor McDavid has returned to the Edmonton Oilers, and if his first game back on the ice in three is any indication, a run at the Pacific Division title is well underway.

In second place in the division, the Oilers head to Anaheim on Tuesday after McDavid collected a goal and two assists in a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. The game against the Ducks will be a prelude for Edmonton's showdown with the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights on Wednesday.

McDavid had missed the previous two weeks, and six games, with a quad injury that occurred in a Feb. 8 game against the Nashville Predators. Getting his flow back with linemate Leon Draisaitl took just short of a full period as the duo hooked up on a power play against the Kings.
